I'm looking for something like baretail with ssh support or the ability to read from standard input so I can pipe the output of plink.

Does anyone have any suggestions.

use plink (from the putty suite) to automatically ssh, do a tail command, and logout

Microsoft has built a tail program (Tail.exe). It is part of the Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools.

The executable will also function properly on Windows XP.

I dunno about plink, but the way I get baretail to work with ssh is:

ssh 'tail -f www/logs/logfile.log' > ~/temp/current.log

and then open the current.log file with baretail
